    I have been working at Queens College part-time

    Pros

    Higher pay than other adjunct professors, mostly friendly and helpful staff and interdisciplinary departmental projects, flexible benefit options, students are hardworking and inquisitive

    Cons

    Not full benefits, limited hours by city rules which keeps an adjunct from making salary closer to tenured without being a tenure track professor

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to make it better and smoother but overall doing a great job. Fight for adjuncts to have more options for multiple Year teachingnand higher salary for committing to multiple Year positions

    Pros

    Worked at their summer camp. Good experience in learning something new.

    Cons

    They hired me for a position I felt was not suited for which was sports counselor. I wanted to work with younger children and with the education side of the camp. I felt bad that the kids were teaching ME how to play sports.

    Place candidates based on their strengths
